On Saturday, June 10, the 2017 Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour played the South Carolina One-Day Open Series at Mid Carolina Club. The goal of One-Day Open Series events is to provide a fun and friendly tournament on a premium golf course. The event featured a field of 41 players from the PKB Girls’ Golf Tour, the nation’s largest “girls’ only” junior tour.
